Difference between Tranny and Shemale

Main Difference

Shemale is a term used by the porn industry to refer to transgendered individuals, and often more specifically, transsexuals. It is seen by transsexuals similar to how the N-word is seen by African-Americans, except that it is not used by transsexuals themselves to refer to each other. “Tranny” is another word generally seen by transsexuals as an insult; however, like the N-word, transsexuals will sometimes use it amongst themselves. A she male, and lady boy, is a girl with male genitalia. Tranny is a gender, with the other genders reproductive organs.
